    Hi All,

    We are a friendly, progressive, ambitious band based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. Just now we are looking to fill 2nd Horn, 2nd Baritone and trombone, however we are always welcoming new players!! The more the merrier! We rehearse Friday 7.30pm at Staffordshire University, Room B211 Brindley Building, Leek Road Campus, Stoke-on-Trent.

    Over the last few months we have really being pushing the band forward. We have played a number of prestigious concerts, including a stint at the local football club stadium (we were on sky tv!!!) The band is continuing to grow and the friendly and sociable atmosphere is really bringing out some excellent results in the music we play. We are looking to transfer all this into a great performance at contests particularly the area 2008!!

    We are always welcoming new players and supporters but we would just like to make all students from Keele, Staffordshire and Manchester Met University aware that they are always welcome at our rehearsals (and there is guaranteed beer after!!) We are in easy reach and if you need a lift we can provide you with one.

    Any questions or queries don't hesitate to contact our amazing administator Alan Sargeant (he doesn't bite much, we promise!:p )
    01782 314742

    or our treasurer Robbie (aka our Flugel Player who also helps the Keele Concert band)
